2012: They Were Warned

By mike flugennockSaturday - November 21st, 2009Categories: Economy, Health Care, Obamarama, Party Animals, elections, media, war and peace

It’s the end of the world as they know it…
but they feel fine!

Those of you who’ve followed my work for any length of time will remember my complaints about the early start of the Presidential “election” cycle (John Edwards announced on Christmas Week, 2006) in the form of the four-part “Jackass Slate for 2008″.

So, here it is, at least a year before the “official” start of the 2012 Presidential campaign season, and here I am already doing a ‘12 Election cartoon. I don’t know what else I can say for myself, other than that when the muse visits me, she absolutely refuses to quit pestering me until I’ve committed a creation to paper. It really was a “perfect storm” of events, recently: we had the epic FAIL of the Obama Administration in the areas of healthcare, the economy, and the war in Afghanistan; the Democrats stumbling in the recent elections in Virginia and elsewhere; the GOP hopefuls for ‘12 already jockeying for position; Obama’s approval rating finally dropping to a level representative of normal objective reality; the ominous spectre of a sound butt-paddling for the Democrats in the 2010 off-year elections — and a movie just out about the end of the world in 2012, which was pretty much the icing on the conceptual cake.

Now, I’m not into clairvoyance or prophecy or any of that woo-woo, but the events of the past year — most notably the healthcare “reform” debacle — had gotten me to thinking that at least in one respect, the Mayans may have been on to something…

Oooooh, LOOK! The FUTURE!

So, here we are hardly a week into this Shiny New Hope™ and Change™ Era, and we’ve already pretty much seen what The One and his Donkeycratic cohorts are all about: The Future. They want to move forward, move ahead, don’t look back, don’t stop thinking about tomorrow (MoveOn just wants to take another swig of Kool-Aid and – move on). They’re so much about The Future, in fact, that they want to totally ditch the past – including their enabling of war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo, their role as accomplices in the destruction of the Constitution via USA PATRIOT, their endorsement of US-backed Israeli atrocities in Palestine.

Do you people – those of you who know who you are – honestly think the Donkeycrats will so much as lift a finger to bring the Bush mob to justice? Arrest Bush? In your goddamn’ dreams. President Timberlake has kept Robert Friggin’ Gates on as Secretary Of War, f’cripesake – not to mention that The One has also already gotten his hands bloody in Afghanistan and Pakistan this week. Does this look like the kind of guy who’s going to raise so much as a murmur of objection to the crimes of the Bush Regime, anymore than he’s spoken barely a whisper about US-financed Israeli war crimes in Gaza? Wake the hell up, US Left.

To bring Bush and the Gang to justice would require the Donkeycrats to admit to their own extensive complicity in crimes against the Constitution, international law, and humanity in general, crimes the Bush Regime could not have carried out without help from the Donkeycrats – kinda like the spot they found themselves in about ten years ago this month. To have impeached Bubba Clinton for his complete “rap sheet”, aside from all that blowjob nonsense – murderous sanctions against Iraq, the continuous bombing of Iraq, the “Lewinsky Bombing” of Afghanistan and the Sudan, the two and a half months’ continuous saturation bombing of civilians and civilian infrastructure in Yugoslavia – would have required the Donkeycrats to ‘fess up to their having allowed it with barely a peep of protest.

In other words, don’t hold your breath.

Obama’s Big Bus!

By mike flugennockWednesday - December 3rd, 2008Categories: Iraq, Middle East, Obamarama, elections, war and peace

At least up until the last “election” or two, you used to hear a lot – especially from the Donkeycrats – about the proverbial “Big Tent”, ostensibly used to symbolize the Party’s diverse constituencies, but actually just a cheesy way for your Party to pander to segments of the voting population it normally wouldn’t give the time of day to.

Once again though, huge props to the Obama Cult for taking this concept a bold step further. Amazing, how quick and efficient he was, too.

Hear that, UFPJ? Hear that, Code Pink? He already wants to expand the war into Afghanistan? He’s roped in your votes, he’s got what he needed from you, now your ass is under the bus!

Environmentalists? Didn’t he shift his position on offshore oil drilling? D’ohh, under you go. Looking like some awesome parties at the Inauguration, though.

Gays? Lesbians? Let’s not even go there. He doesn’t even want you to be able to marry. He’s even invited that born-again creep, Rick Warren, the Purpose-Driven Gay Basher, to speak at his friggin’ Inauguration! Why the hell did you all go for him so much? Doesn’t matter, you’re gone anyway. Crunch. Ouch.

I could go on, but you can see where I’m headed. The wheels on the bus go ’round and ’round…
